The Morgridge Fellows program, part of the Morgridge Center for Public Service, provides a learning community for faculty, staff, and graduate students to deepen their practice in community-engaged scholarship. Community-engaged scholarship (CES) is defined as: teaching, research, and scholarly activities that are performed in equitable, mutually beneficial collaboration with communities and community members to fulfill campus and community objectives.
Some examples of topics include cultivating equitable relationships, engaged scholarship for justice, and cultivating a community-engaged campus. Each fellow will receive a $1,500 stipend for their professional development. Experience with CES is not needed to apply. Prospective fellows should have a project or goal for their time in the learning community, such as developing a community-based learning course, community-based research project, or furthering institutional support for CES in their area of campus.
